Angie was born on November 2, 1928, in Kansas City to Steve and Panagiota Sakoulas, one of the early Greek immigrant families in Kansas City. She grew up in the Broadway-Valentine neighborhood and attended Redemptorist High School, where she made many lifelong friends, was elected Prom Queen and played the drums. She was a part of the Annunciation church community, where she met her childhood sweetheart and love of her life, John Kapnistos. They married on October 2, 1949. John and Angie were blessed with three children - Louis James Kapnistos, Deborah Ann Kapnistos (Stamatios Douris) and Stephanie Aris York (Mickey). She was a proud Nana to her grandchildren Clayton Michael York (Tiffanye) and Maggie Angelina York (Matt). Angie and John loved to travel, spending many summers on the beautiful island of Ikaria in the Aegean and attending conventions of the Pan Icarian brotherhood.
 
Angie was active in the Church and served on the Philoptochos ladies’ service organization. She sang in the choir and worked at the Greek Food Festival.  Angie helped pioneer one of the first Greek Festivals at the Crown Center which was a smashing success!  She kept an open invitation to family and friends for visits, holidays or just to say hello.  Angie loved antiquing and was able to rewire electrical lamps and refinish furniture with her stylish flare!  She was a great role model and a dazzling Mom!

Angie will be remembered for her fashion sense; she could compare to any top designer in the industry to date.  She will also be remembered for her mastery of Greek dances, and her ability to play the piano by ear like a concert pianist and without sheet music or a single lesson. Most of all, she will be remembered as a beautiful and caring person, who will be missed by her many friends.

Angie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband John, her son Louie, her brother Sam Sakoulas, and her sister Nicoletta Madouras. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Debbie (Stan) and Stef (Mickey), grandchildren Clayton (Tiffanye) and Maggie (Matt), her brother George Sakoulas (Goldie) and Helen Kopulos, nephews and nieces, cousins, and many many friends.
